#70 Feel Guilty Charging Money for Your Work?

#70 Feel Guilty Charging Money for Your Work?

We’re winding up Salesvember on the podcast, and I hope you’re seeing some shifts in your discovery calls – ones that deepen your relationship with potential clients and empower them to say YES if it’s a fit.

If you’ve listened to the last three episodes, you’ve got the bones for a great sales conversation.

In today’s episode, I’m going deeper into something that I see make talented coaches and heart-centered business owners sabotage their own success all the time.

Money Gremlins.

You know, those voices inside your head that say things like:

“You should feel guilty making money off of people who are hurting.”
“Who are you to be paid really well doing something that you love?”
“You’re greedy, pushy, salesy if you ask for the money you want.”

These Money Gremlins can keep you from increasing your rates as you grow, can make you discount your work, can hold you back from even offering your services in the first place.

So I decided to create this episode to share with you the shifts that have created the most transformation for my clients as well as my 3-steps to confidently ask for what you’re worth.

Listen to learn how to bust through the fear of charging money for your work so you can raise your rates and finally charge what you’re worth.
